My Triplet Ballerinas: Cool Facts About My Triplets, Part 1
Guest Blogger: Megan J. My triplet ballerinas are my daughters, Makenna Anne, Jaeli Jo and Maysie Jailyn
At my first ultrasound, we found out we were having twins, but they did not have their heartbeats yet. We went back at 7 weeks to get measurements and check for heartbeats. We had two healthy heartbeats and then after measuring both babies, the nurse says, “Uh Oh! I see another one” which the next ultrasound also showed three. My pregnancy was easy, and I only had to go to the hospital once for Braxton Hicks contractions at 28 weeks. I made it to 34 weeks and 4 days with three healthy girls.
Makenna is fraternal and Jaeli and Maysie are identical. Jaeli and Maysie took a DNA test when they were six months old because of how much they looked alike (the doctors told us they were all fraternal). I have only ever given myself a scare one time mixing them up when I had to undress them for their 6-month photo shoot at the hospital, but, luckily, I had painted Maysie’s toenail for this specific reason!
